The Red Runners A sequel to The Cazanova Treasure (Author Signed), Hawkins, Seckatary
14 Hawkins, Seckatary The Red Runners A sequel to The Cazanova Treasure (Author Signed)
Cincinnati Robert F. Schulkers 1926 Later Printing; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Poor dust jacket Illustrated by Carll B Williams Signed by Author
Published by Author. Inscribed With all good wishes, signed Seckatary Hawkins. Dust has staining and chips, now in mylar dust cover. Book in very good condition with minor edge wear an stored in an archival slipcase. Very Rare inscribed copy. Seckatary Hawkins is the fictional lead character of a series of children's novels authored by Robert F. Schulkers. The eleven novels were first published between 1921 and 1932, although many appeared first in serialized form in The Cincinnati Enquirer and hundreds of other newspapers around the country. The eleven novels are Stoner's Boy, Seckatary Hawkins in Cuba, The Red Runners, The Gray Ghost, Stormie the Dog Stealer, Knights of the Square Table, Ching Toy, The Chinese Coin, The Yellow Y, Herman the Fiddler, and The Ghost of Lake Tapaho.Schulkers further popularized the series through a nationally syndicated NBC radio broadcast from Chicago and an extensive number of Seckatary Hawkins clubs in larger metropolitan areas. The official club name was "The Fair and Square Club". The club slogan was "A quitter never wins and a winner never quits". Except for Seckatary Hawkins in Cuba and The Ghost of Lake Tapaho, the setting was a river bank that was a composite based on Schulker's familiarity with segments of the Ohio River, the Licking River, and the Kentucky River. Seckatary Hawkins, a fat boy with a cowlick, recorded daily minutes of the adventures of a remarkably organized group of boys. The group of ten or so boys (some boys rotated in and out of the club) had their own club house on the river bank, complete with a stove for heat, a telephone, and even an organ for the required singing practice. Their enemies were formidable. Some had rifles, drove cars, and most were guilty of a number of felonious acts.While never the president of the club, Seckatary Hawkins was clearly the smartest member and the leader. He was regularly called upon by the books' few adult characters and many of the youthful ones to solve various mysteries and to keep the river bank safe. Most of their enemies in the end went home to their mothers or ended up in the school for bad boys. A few reformed during death scenes.Seckatary Hawkins has a small cadre of loyal followers still today who have, under the guidance of one of the author's grandsons, re-established a "Fair and Square" club.The author's books have always enjoyed an enthusiastic readership, the most notable Harper Lee, who mentions two of them in her classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Extremely rare. ; Illustrations; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 336 pages; Signed by Author
